Haiku North America 2007

We are pleased to announce that Haiku North America 2007 will take place from Wednesday, August 15, to Sunday, August 19, in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

"Butterfly Dreams: The Seasons through Haiku and Photographs, a slide show and talk by William J. Higginson and Michael Lustbader. Butterfly Dreams combines stunning nature images by Michael, whose work has been published by the National Geographic, Sierra Club, and Oxford Scientific Films, with Bill's fresh translations of striking haiku by Japanese masters, many never before seen in English. The duo will present a selection of images and poems from their recently published e-book of the same title, and comment on fine points of photography and translation, similarities between photographic and haiku composition, and the aesthetics involved in pairing images and poems. The show will include a meditative viewing of paired images and poems, comments by Bill and Michael, and opportunities for questions and comments from the audience."
